You don't need a Wireless card as it comes with the AirPort Extreme installed. This would be fine for use with any router or wireless network.
If you are talking about a mobile broadband solution, I am not sure that there are any providers that would offer an option for Mac users, though I could be wrong.__________________________________________________

Cingular has a mobile broadband card that uses the ExpressCard slot.
Option GT Max 3.6
A quick search has revealed that it definitely supports Mac OS X. This is just Cingular, I'm sure some searching at other providers will turn up something.
Also, the WWAN update Apple released a little while ago added support for the following cards:
Novatel Merlin XU870 ExpressCard (HSDPA)
Novatel Wireless Merlin EX720
